About Dale: Regarded as one of Australia's outstanding jazz musicians, saxophonist and band leader Dale Barlow performed recently at the 2013 International Jazz Day in Turkey alongside jazz greats such as Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Branford Marsalis, Terence Blanchard, Terri Lynn Carrington, Diane Reeves and many more.
Dale has been busy rehearsing and writing new material for a new band to be revealed for the first time at Foundry616, where they will be playing most Fridays in September - a kind of comeback after a long pause from performing due to serious back problems that threatened to force him to give up the saxophone and play only flute.
Following several operations, the formidable Dale is back to doing what he does best: so don't miss the chance to catch him at the helm of a great jazz improvisation vehicle in this thrilling new quartet.

A cover charge is applicable - between $10-$20 for most gigs except special events and dinner/show tickets also available as well as great bar food.
